SURF SHACK: LAID BACK LIVING BY THE WATER By Nina Freudenberger
This stylish and light-infused design book offers a glimpse into 20 aspirational bungalows, coastal cabins, boat houses, and hideaways in California, Montauk, Baja, Australia, and more. Surfing is a lifestyle that embraces a sense of adventure, a zen attitude, and, for many, life near the beach. The remarkable homes proflied in Surf Shack epitomise this surfing sensibility, partly because they're all homes crafted or owned by professional and amateur surfers. Lush lifestyle photography depicts rooms that prioritise communal socialising and break down barriers between indoors and outdoors, and highlights just how sophisticated and inviting these homes are, with personal accents (like handmade surf boards, cactus gardens, or Mexican blankets) juxtaposed with dreamy architectural details (outdoor showers, plunge pools, and skylights).
